North Sea Mammoth Teeth & Bones Above Image by Mauricio Anton. Nice selection of Molar Teeth from the Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) They are dated to around 30,000 years old (Devensian stage). Found by fishermen dredging the area of the North Sea between Lowestoft, UK to the Brownbank, Holland. All teeth have been treated with a special preserver that hardens the tooth. Collector Grade teeth (the very best) are labelled in the descriptions.
European Southern Mammoth Teeth - Mammuthus meridionalis Inland European Southern Mammoth fossils. Found in the Donau river gravel deposits. These are solid teeth from Caves and river deposits and are heavily mineralised, and better preserved than North Sea finds. They are also not as common.
Dated to the Pleistocene, Novi Sad / Donau River / Serbia 2.5 - 1.5 Million years old (Gelasian) It weighed 8-10 tonnes. Height; 4 metres high at the shoulder. Lived during the Late Pliocene to Early Pleistocene times. With a height of about 4 m. (13 ft.) and estimated weight of 8 to 10 tons, M. meridionalis is one of the largest proboscideans to have ever lived, along with other larger species of mammoth, and the earlier Deinotherium. It had robust twisted tusk, common of mammoths. Its molars had low crowns and a small number of thick enamel ridges, adapted to a woodland diet of leaves and shrubs; this indicates it lived on a relatively warm climate which makes more probable that it lacked dense fur.
These are Older than the North sea Mammoths, a species called M. primigenius that came later in the evolution of the Mammoth. These teeth are very uncommon and are ideal for the collector who already has a North Sea or Russian Mammoth tooth and wants to compliment their collection with a rarer species of the Mammoth. All have been treated with a special hardener to preserve the teeth.
